News from Collieston and Slains this year
Unfortunately the firework display planned for Saturday night is not allowed under Tier 2 regulations.
As private garden displays are still allowed, it might be an idea that all fireworks are set off at 6pm on Saturday – the same time as the planned event.
The Collieston Calendar 2021 is full of beautiful photographs of Collieston an the surrounding area.
The Calendars are £5 each, with cash or bank transfer options available. Local deliveries possible (otherwise P&P will be charged).
To order please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and phone number and we will be in touch to arrange.
Alternatively you can pick up copies at either the Newburgh Costcutter shop or Formartines near Tarves.
You are invited to watch a tribute to mark VJ Day tomorrow 14th August, taking place at 7pm on Braehead.
Pipes and Drums will play Battle’s O’er- the official VJ day song – followed by a selection of other music.
Collieston and Slains lost six servicemen in the 1939 – 1945 conflict Private James Bruce 2nd Gordons, Driver John Duthie RASC, Gunner Frank McWilliam RHA, Sgt Charles Soang, RAF, Private Willian Watt, 2nd Gordons and Able Seaman William Webster, Merchant Navy.
We will remember them.
Next Tuesday, 11th August, a fundraiser for the Fisherman’s Mission will be calling in at Collieston as part of his round Scotland kayak tour. Why not come and give him a welcome to the North East? More details of timing to come later.
